Advanced academic writing for PhD researchers

Building on an analysis of participants' own texts submitted prior to commencement, this course gives you a clear idea of your strengths and weaknesses concerning written academic English. It shows you what you can do to improve your confidence in the short term, helps you to eradicate those silly mistakes, and gives you new options for expressing complex ideas in well-structured English sentences, so that you can add some variation to your writing. There is an emphasis on improving the clarity and compactness of your writing. On top of that you will be able to check and revise your own writing in a methodical fashion using a detailed editing checklist.

The course is taught intensively over a 2-week period, with two 3-hour sessions in the first week, and three 3-hour sessions in the second week. Assessment is in the form of editing and re-editing tasks relating to your own work, plus other editing assignments. Feedback is given using ELS-online, the ALP feedback system. 

The course is offered on campus.
